The Chimpanzee Book: Apes Like Us

By Dr Carla Litchfield

The story of chimpanzees - from those that use sharp-ended spears to hunt, to those that have their own ‘crossing guards’ to help them travel to safety!

They look cute and cuddly but don’t underestimate them – our closest living animal relatives use tools to hunt, can hold a grudge and can even use computers to communicate.

  • Part of the award-winning non-fiction series for younger readers, Wild Planet.
  • Amazing, exclusive photography from scientists working in the field
  • Sidebars, maps and fact-boxes ensure that readers of all levels can engage with the text.
